Can you request different pillows?

Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place or not but mods feel free to move it if necessary.

Does anyone know if you are able to request different types of pillows from housekeeping? I always find the pillows at Disney extremely hard and uncomfortable as I'm used to having fairly soft pillows. I was wondering if it was possible to request softer/down filled pillows in place of the standard room pillows?

I really don't want to take my own pillows as we're flying down but I will if I have to.

I'm not sure about this as we have the same problem, but we take our own pillows anyway. But I'm sure you could call Disney and ask them. though!!

They do have different pillows, but it's on a first come/first served basis. If they have what you want, they will bring them to your room for you.

Just call down to mousekeeping from your resort room's phone and ask.

How difficult is it to bring your own if you're flying?

You can use your pillow as one of your carryons for the flight. I have seen many people do that. If you are going to take your own pillow, make sure you take a pillow case that is not white for it and do not keep it on the bed when you go to the parks. Place it in a drawer or in your luggage so that mousekeeping does not accidently take your pillow thinking it was a WDW pillow.

You can request featherless pillows, etc for allergy reasons so they have more than one type of pillow on property, not sure if it will be what you want or not but you could try calling mousekeeping and asking.

Last time we flew I checked luggage and took one of the big duffel bags and had my body pillow and 2 bed pillows in it. You can have 2 checked bags per person on SW so we checked bags so I could bring my pillows.

Big? I've always thought that the pillows at the Disney hotels were small. Certainly smaller than what I use at home anyway.

Same here, and I always though of them as too soft compared to what I like! Different pillows for different heads.

I tend to take my own pillow when travelling because I'm picky that way, but it can be difficult to find space in the luggage.

When I fly I have my checked bag, a carry on, a 'purse' and a neck pillow. I've never had any issues with this set up. Can I simply substitute a regular pillow for a neck pillow?

I always bring my own pillow wherever I go. I just usually put in in my suitcase on top of all of my clothes.

The last time I flew Airtran, that would have been considered too many carryon pieces.

I saw more than one person trying to shove a neck pillow into their carryon because they were only allowed 2 and the neck pillow made it 3 carryon items.

Airtran can be strict about their carryons which is fine with me.

So I'd think you would want to just put your regular pillow on top of your clothes in your checked bag and be ok.
